Interview with Nitobe Fellows #5: “Social Capital – The Possibility of Encounters and Connections” (Hiromichi Sato)

We interviewed sociologist Yoshimichi Sato, who is conducting research into social capital—the idea that human networks can have both a positive and negative impact. He spoke in detail about the importance of building bridges between different groups at a time when society is becoming increasingly divided. Watch this video for insights into how each chance encounter has the potential to change one’s life.
